Possible EL speedo/tach fix???

Ok, so I just did the EL swap from my other Lude to my newer Lude and was thinking. Would it be possible to replace those light bars that shine for the tach and speedo be replaced by led's? Kinda of like splice them in to the harness from the inverter box. Cause my gauges dont work. Only the needles, the instrument panel and clock. (No gas or temp gauge lights, but the rest of those panels work)

so only the speedo and tach work?
if your gas and temp gauges don't work buy a new/used one and switch it out they are notorious for burning out

Yeah! the surrounding lights don't :-( ... So eventually im gonna try and see if I can be able to get little led's where the light cmomes through the face of the gauge.

As for the gas/temp gauge yea I'm gonna but a used one cause I was looking at new and they're only like $500. lol... I'm really surprised that no one has been able to fix them yet. ah well

Re: Possible EL speedo/tach fix???

tho whole reason the EL gauges work/look the way they do is bc of the light bars. If a seller screwed u tell em about it. If not just buy new EL cluster

You gonna front the money for it? lol...

I was wondering if it could be done since my cluster is shot in the way of lights working
